I’ve Always Loved You
A song about the bittersweet agony of unrequited love. I like the idea of a limbo state to represent the long drawn out period spent getting over someone. This is conceived as a torch song that should be sung by a female vocalist.
I deliberately framed the tune if blocks of 5, 10 and 7 bars to create the aural impression that, like the unrequited love, it keeps stopping short and nothing fully resolves (at least until the dark final chord). It called out for a string quartet.
